# Python: Accepts six numbers as input and sorts them in descending order

## Python Basic - 1: Exercise-42 with Solution

Write a Python program that accepts six numbers as input and sorts them in descending order.

**Input:**

Input consists of six numbers n1, n2, n3, n4, n5, n6 (-100000 ≤ n1, n2, n3, n4, n5, n6 ≤ 100000). The six numbers are separated by a space.

Input six integers:

15 30 25 14 35 40

After sorting the said integers:

40 35 30 25 15 14

**Visual Presentation:**

**Sample Solution**:

**Python Code:**

```
# Print statement to prompt the user to input six integers
print("Input six integers:")
# Take user input, split it into a list of integers, and assign it to the variable 'nums'
nums = list(map(int, input().split()))
# Sort the list of integers in ascending order
nums.sort()
# Reverse the order of the sorted list to get descending order
nums.reverse()
# Print statement to indicate the result after sorting the integers
print("After sorting the said integers:")
# Unpack and print the sorted integers
print(*nums)
```

Sample Output:

Input six integers: 15 30 25 14 35 40 After sorting the said ntegers: 40 35 30 25 15 14

**Explanation:**

Here is a breakdown of the above Python code:

- The code starts by printing a message to prompt the user to input six integers.
- It then takes user input, splits it into a list of integers, and assigns it to the variable 'nums'.
- The list of integers (nums) is sorted in ascending order using the "sort()" method.
- The order of the sorted list is reversed using the "reverse()" method, resulting in descending order.
- Another print statement is used to indicate the result after sorting the integers.
- Finally, the sorted integers are unpacked and printed using the print(*nums) statement.

**Previous:** Write a Python program to compute and print sum of two given integers (more than or equal to zero). If given integers or the sum have more than 80 digits, print "overflow".

**Next:** Write a Python program to test whether two lines PQ and RS are parallel. The four points are P(x1, y1), Q(x2, y2), R(x3, y3), S(x4, y4).
